In honor of her fabulous story (check it out then come back here, I beg of you), I am hosting
The First Ever
Recess for Writers Contest!
Ironically, the contest has nothing to do with writing. But it definitely requires some serious innovation.
The rules are pretty darn simple.
Entrants have until Monday, December 10th at noon E.S.T. to send me their most imaginative (and edible) dishes using the following seven ingredients ONLY. Any cookware may be used (such as the type that is nonstick), but no other food products can be thrown into the mix.
The most original recipe will be highlighted in a special blog post here on Tuesday, December 11th.
I'll probably hand out some sort of prize, too, but I have no clue what it will be as of right now. So let's just call it "a surprise" and leave it at that! (I'm open to ideas. Perhaps a special little icon you can put at your website? The Recess for Writers... er... Cooks Award?)
In any case, here are your seven ingredients. As Tim Gunn coolly announces on Project Runway: "Make it work."
1. 2 cups of strawberries
2. 7 kosher dill pickles (you may use the pickle brine for extra points)
3. 4 cups of buttermilk
4. 3 radishes
5. 5 slices of wheat bread
6. 1 stick of butter
7. 2 eggs
